Women In Defense Michigan established the HORIZONS-Michigan Scholarship in 2009 to encourage women to pursue careers related to the national security and defense interests of the United States, and to provide development opportunities to women already working in these fields. From program inception to date, $98,000 in scholarships have been awarded.
"The Women In Defense-Michigan Chapter not only supported my dreams and ambitions as a professional in national defense but showed me the importance of community. Without this award, I would have been discouraged from attending school. To me, receiving this award means that someone has faith in me and an interest in my success. I take this act of kindness very seriously and it inspires me to deliver outstanding results, whether in school, the community, the military, or at work. Knowing that I have been recognized for my hard work and dedication motivates me to continue to push my limits and be a positive member of society. "
